He made comments that he wanted to play for an NFC East team so he could make the Cowboys pay for giving up on him.
Except some guy named Dez Bryant.
While Jason Witten thinks that Dez Bryant could end up with the Green Bay Packers, that is just one of a number of possibilities for the former Dallas Cowboys superstar. The #Packers have been considered a possible Dez Bryant landing spot. but they aren't engaged now and nothing is imminent.
"You partner him up with Jimmy Graham and Aaron Rodgers, I think that offense could put up a lot of points and losing Jordy Nelson in the offseason, when they cut him, I think it's a win-win for the Packers". That was before the Packers drafted three receivers in the draft two weeks ago, though.
Those options haven't impressed some fans.
Additionally, receiver-turned running back Ty Montgomery is adept at catching the ball out of the backfield and Rodgers even has another dynamic TE in Lance Kendricks to line up in multiple tight-end sets.
As Witten mentioned, adding Bryant to a Rodgers-led offense that already includes Graham, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams is a scary thought.
Bryant has struggled in recent seasons, with no 1,000-yard receiving campaigns since 2014. He received a contract offer from the Baltimore Ravens, but didn't seem interested in it.
One story in particular surfaced on Tuesday, when Ryan discussed how WR Dez Bryant "punked" a first-year defender so badly his career was ruined.
Rapoport says the Packers do not seem to be in on Bryant at this time, along with the rest of the NFL. Witten believes that Bryant will end up with the Green Bay Packers.
Both teams can handle an explosive veteran presence like Dez, so it's not implausible that they end up securing the services of the star receiver. Bryant will likely have to keep looking for a new team as opportunities continue to dwindle throughout the offseason.
Bryant isn't going to stretch the field, but he wouldn't need to.
